Subject: Fun read!
Great basic teaching about farm life, animals, equipment and plant growing. There is a lot of interesting things to be found here.
Even manners are encouraged. At one point they are giving an example of a typical day and their sample kid is Paul. One part I found amusing: "Paul enters into the conversation occasionally but is careful not to make a nuisance of himself by talking too much or by asking questions about things which are none of his concern." I remember being raised in my younger years that you do not speak unless spoken to. Those days are over now, which is too bad sometimes.
Another thing which struck me was this: "Fire is a great hazard on all farms. NEVER SMOKE IN OR
AROUND ANY FARM BUILDING." Yep, even I remember the day when it was acceptable for teens to smoke. I went to high school in the early 1980s and we had smoking permits. I guess they didn't even need a permit in the 40s.
In any case, I highly recommend this, it is helpful to learn the basics about farms.
